The Untitled Black Lesbian Elder Project is an amazing Tumblr with photos, quotations, film excerpts, and ephemera that accompanies a feature-length documentary, now in production, that "will highlight interviews with black lesbian elders in their 60s, 70s and 80s from across the United States and situate them in a range of black historical movements, spanning the decades between the 1930s and 1980s."

Nice to see Moms Mabley one of the funniest ladies ever. (and her song 'It's All Right' [can't find a link, sorry] never fails to lift my spirits])

This tumblr is making me want to go reread all of my Audre Lorde and Cheryl Clarke, like right this fucking second.
